Large hotel situated on the seafront overlooking Galway Bay. The hotel is further away from Galway town centre than we had been led to believe and reckon it is a good 30 minute walk. It appeared to be the sort of hotel that attracted coach parties and families.
We stayed for two nights on a B&B basis with dinner on the first night. We were sufficiently satisfied with dinner to eat in the second night as well rather that find somewhere in Galway. Breakfast was self-service with plenty of variety on offer including a pancake machine. We were happy with the breakfast on offer.
The hotel has a large car park and it is worth noting that, at the far end, there is access to an underground additional parking area. We were warmly welcomed by reception and to our surprise were allocated a sea view room on the first floor. The weather was very warm so we slept with the windows open but were undisturbed by passing traffic or any other noise The room met our requirements and was what one would expect from a 4 star hotel.
We found the staff to be efficient and friendly.
